Barcodes mean

1) a means of reading them. These devices usually fit between your keyboard and
your computer and mimic someone keying in the code directly. All you need to do in
your app is a little forms design to ensure someone can continuously feed bar codes
into your app and change the quantity occasionally.

2) A means of printing them. Choose the proper barcode and locate an appropriate
font. Place the font file on all the systems which will be printing bar codes. On
the report(s) change the font on a field to use the bar code font. Some bar codes
like having *s before and after while others like check digits.

For more info and links see the Using bar codes within an application page at my
website at http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/barcode.htm
